We are a  non-profit BC-registered Society based in Victoria, B.C. dedicated to promoting public science outreach at the DAO. We aim to revitalize its public programming and visitors centre, the "Centre of the Universe."

Learn more about what we are trying to do by reviewing our brochure, and looking about our "About Us" page.

We are now taking memberships and would love to have you as a member. You can sign up for membership on this site.

Please visit our facebook page, Friends of the DAO, as there is much more happening over there at the moment. You don't need a facebook account to see it. We also have a Twitter account: Friends of the DAO

Interested in coming up on a Saturday night? Check out our events page.

Donate to us to renew educational activities at the observatory!
